ABOUT THIS ART:
"This painting was part of my 'Wandering Luminations' exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in October 2013. The theme of the show as a whole was about evolution in darkness, and the light that is created from within that dim environment...deep space, deep oceans, dark caves. The parallels these unknown worlds have. Bio-luminescent figures that, in their solitude, create a glowing environment. Light from dark. Creation in isolation.

The idea behind 'The Love Note' was an exploration into the heart hole theme I have been playing with for many years, replacing the empty heart with blank heart shaped note that has been unfolded and pinned to this woman's chest. It signifies the beginning, an almost clean slate if you will, tinged with just a little blood from her past, with a blind leap of faith into the future." - Tara McPherson

This RUN come signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Tara McPherson and 1xRUN.
